Hi folks. I'm in the process of installing a windlass on my 3288. It's a lewmar pro 1000 which has a really small footprint. There isn't a great deal of room between the shackle at the back of the anchor and the windlass. If I add a swivel there's almost no room between the swivel and the windlass. About 2 links of chain between the two. I havent mounted the bow roller yet so I can move it forward to make the room that I need but I prefer to not shift it any far forward the necessary. Oh and I need to let you know that I removeed the bow pulpit. It was delaminating pretty badly and I opted to remove rather than repair. My initial thought is I could shift the windlass back about 6 inches so that the chain hole is on the inside of the bulkhead versus the chain locker side of the bulkhead. I could then use a 3 inch piece of PVC pipe at a relatively steep angle to direct the chain through another hole drilled through the bulkhead just above the chain locker door. It seems like if the angle is steep enough it should still allow the chain to fall straight down to the deepest part of the chain locker and not bind in any way up or down. I'm wondering if any of you out there have done or seen anything similar.

If that can be of any help, here is how I installed my Lewmar 1000 on my 3270.

I used CapMartins photos installing a Lewmar 1000 on my 3218 and have had no issues for over three years.

Thanks Captain Mike,

I've read your project and plan to do it pretty much as you have described. So thanks in advance. My difference though is I've removed the bow pulpit which brings the bow roller a little further back over the bow. I'm using a swivel between the chain and anchor which makes for little room between anchor swiveland windlass. There is literally two links of chain between the two. At the end of the day I think it will be fine but it's seem like a bit more distance betweeen the two woukd add to my comfort. Perhaps I'm over thinking it but there's no room for error as you know.
